Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

Saudi-Led Coalition Suffers Heavy Casualties in Southern Yemen

 

 

   Over 20 Saudi-led mercenaries were killed and 70 others were injured as the Yemeni army and popular committees frustrated their attempt to advance towards al-Omari military camp in Taiz province, according to battlefield sources.

 
   The Yemeni forces also bombarded a Saudi warship on Mocha coast in Taiz.
 
   Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
 
   Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
 
   However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.

"Today hundreds of Saudi and allied troops, equipped with the latest fighter jets, guided missiles and tanks were ruthlessly slaughtered by some Shia peasants armed with sharpened mud.  Saudi officials were unavailable for comment because they were attending a public execution of a toddler for idolatry.  This marks the fourth straight month of defeats for the Saudi-led coalition, although Saudi military officials have noted that the substitution of slippers for boots with laces has enormously reduced casualties from tripping and falling."

So now we've got Colombian mercs. (as one will recall, Iran and Hezbollah are active in Venezuela and are involved with training FARC)

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/26/world/middleeast/emirates-secretly-sends-colombian-mercenaries-to-fight-in-yemen.htm

 

WASHINGTON — The United Arab Emirates has secretly dispatched hundreds of Colombian mercenaries to Yemen to fight in that country’s raging conflict, adding a volatile new element in a complex proxy war that has drawn in the United States and Iran.

 

It is the first combat deployment for a foreign army that the Emirates has quietly built in the desert over the past five years, according to several people currently or formerly involved with the project. The program was once managed by a private company connected to Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater Worldwide, but the people involved in the effort said that his role ended several years ago and that it has since been run by the Emirati military.

 

The arrival in Yemen of 450 Latin American troops — among them are also Panamanian, Salvadoran and Chilean soldiers — adds to the chaotic stew of government armies, armed tribes, terrorist networks and Yemeni militias currently at war in the country. Earlier this year, a coalition of countries led by Saudi Arabia, including the United States, began a military campaign in Yemen against Houthi rebels who have pushed the Yemeni government out of the capital, Sana.

What a fucking shitshow.  The best funded armies in the Middle East, with all of that fucking oil revenue can't build a competent fighting force. They have to hire freaking mercs. :blink:

Well sure you can go to Europe or Russia with bundles of oil money and buy all the expensive and customized weapons you need like you're going into car dealership, but having competent troops is another thing, especially when your military culture holds NCOs/enlisted troops in contempt and fears giving them any sort of initiative.

Another article from them that makes some interesting points.

Not sure I totally disagree with the thought. Though there is a legitmate strategic reason to want them as an ally. Air bases there have been kinda crucial at times.  I think Turkey was in much better shape a few years back, but the current PM hasn't exactly been a strong pro NATO/ pro-westernization force.

We've discussed the Why Arabs Lose Wars earlier here on the forum CM. Not flattering for the snackbars

Yeah, a lack of a professional NCO corps and treating your troops like subhuman garbage doesn't exactly make for a fighting force built to win battles.  I would have figured the Americans would have made the Saudis absorb at least some of that over the last 25 years of being allied.  But they are freaking Wahabists.  Thick skulls I guess.

   According to Khabar Agency, a military source said that the Army and People’s Committees managed to storm the Nahoukah base in west of Najran on Thursday, taking full control of it after clashing with Saudi forces.

 
   The source said Saudi forces suffered heavy losses and equipments after Yemeni forces controls the Saudi military base.
 
   He pointed out that the Yemeni army’s artillery units destroyed a Saudi’s Hummer military vehicle in Rabuah of Asir, adding that missile forces also flattening multiple Saudi sites in Jizan including Al-Radeef base.
 
   He added that Yemeni forces targets most of the Saudi military sites in Najran, including the Rejla Camp.
 
   This coincided with the Coalition air raid targeting many Saudi military sites controlled by Yemeni army and People’s Committees in Jizan, Najran, and Asir, along with reconnaissance drones flying over it.
 
   The military source spoken on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak with media.
 
   Also on Wednesday, Yemeni forces destroyed military vehicles in Asir and Jizan, along with rockets and missiles raining towards several Saudi locations.
 
   Military source told Khabar Agency that missile units belonging to the Army and People’s Committees destroyed a vehicle and killed Saudi troops who were on board in Rabuah.

Yemeni Army and Houthis Overrun the Saudi Army in Najram

 

 

   Last month, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and their popular committees – led by the Houthis – shocked the region after capturing the strategic city of Rabouah; this strategic city was also located in southern Saudi Arabia, creating panic amongst the Saudi-led Coalition Forces that were combatting the Republican Guard and Houthis for several months prior to this demoralizing defeat.

 
   One month later, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces have been paralyzed in southern Saudi Arabia, as the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis pushed their way into another Saudi border city after combatting the pro-Hadi forces for several months inside the Jizan Region.
 
   On Saturday morning in southern Saudi Arabia, the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis overran the Saudi-led Coalition Forces at the city of Najran, killing several of their fighters and seizing their military equipment before imposing full control over the Saudi Army post in the southeastern countryside of this city.
 
   The loss of Rabouah inside Saudi Arabia last month resulted in the Saudi-led Coalition Forces having their primary supply route cutoff by the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis; if they lose Najran, they will lose another border-crossing to the enemy forces, despite having the superior weapons and air support.

   This comes amidst after a strategic Saudi base Nahoukah in Najran was taken by Yemeni forces few days ago, inflicting heavy losses on Saudi forces and seizing many equipments.
 
   The source also clarified that the Army and Popular Commitees are determined to advance to where the Saudis do not expect.

Breaking: Yemeni Army and the Houthis Capture 3 Sites in the Saudi City of Najran

 

This is just crazy. 

 

   Moments ago in the Saudi city of Najran, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – backed by the Houthis – imposed full control over 3 Saudi military sites after a series of intense firefights with the Saudi-led Coalition Forces on the border of Yemen.

 
   According to a battlefield journalist, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces suffered heavy casualties near the southeastern perimeter of Najran, resulting in their subsequent withdrawal from 3 military sites before the Saudi Air Force’s F-16 fighter jets pounded the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis.
 
   In the last 48 hours, the Houthis and Republican Guard have made several advances along Najran’s southern axis, leaving the Saudi-led Coalition Forces in a world of trouble.
 
   Last month, the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis Captuted the strategic Saudi city of Rabouah, marking the first time during this conflict that the anti-Hadi forces seized an entire city in Saudi Arabia.
 
   This embarrassing defeat to the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis led many to question the effectiveness of the Saudi airstrikes and their ground assault, as they proved ineffective in both northern Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia.
 
   As a result of their failures in Yemen, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces have called on more reinforcements from the Sudan and Mauritania; however, they have been relatively ineffective thus far.

We're going to have to send troops in again to bail those ungrateful camel jockeys, aren't we?

I doubt it. Most Americans haven't heard of yemen or a terror act related to them

At worst the Americans will start bombing

AQAP was the big new thing in terrorist threats to the West until ISIS happened. AQAP has ties to Little Rock shooting and the Christmas Underwear bomber a few years ago. 

 

America has already been bombing Yemen since 2010 IIRC.

      Nice meme, why destroy someone's feeling? Why do you even start flame war to ruin the already bad Japanese tech tree? Why don't you sign up a partnership program with Gaijin? She is trying her very best supporting the few of us playing Japanese tank tech tree? I don't care if she made Ho-Ri up or not, none of us want to care about this. We want something good as Russian tanks in War Thunder, and the answer is the Ho-Ri production.  If you say that you have 100 picture of Ho-Ri or 5 video of it, that will be very convincing. But the reality is that your just another Chinese that want to rost Koreans. Sadly you and your Hon Kong are just same person that sits in front of your computer 24/7 without any research on Japanese tank.
      Also if you dare changing our beloved Ho-Ri's slope front armor into flat. EVERYONE in the Japanese tech tree will bloody murder you when you sleep.

      It occurred to me, while reading LoooSeR's account of how a bunch of peasants are clobbering the expensive Saudi military, that perhaps it was time to take a good, hard look at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  What a vibrant and wonderful country!
       
      Saudi Arabia leads the world in incest:
       

       
       
      Saudi Clerics have novel theories of science.
       
      They have a diversified, modern economy, which is definitely not unstable:
       

       
      Including a booming agricultural sector!
       
      What a swell place, with enlightened views on women!
